Cells At Work Code Black Volume 1 Review

-Written by: Andrew

Take care of your body and your body will take care of you, but what happens if you don’t treat your body well? Cells at Work Code Black takes a look at what happens inside your body if you drink, smoke, and overall don’t care for it.

Like the regular series, Cells at Work, this manga shows what your different cells and body parts do. The story follows a male red blood cell just starting his job of circulating oxygen through the body. He has a bit of a rough start, and all of the different things going wrong with the body don’t help. Throughout his journey he meets a female white blood cell and forms a small friendship. Many different cells show up, and through different conflicts, demonstrate what they do for the body.

This all seems like just a gender-swapped version of the regular series, but it is the humor, topics, and atmosphere that make it different. There's lots of blood, violence, and nudity in these pages. That said, the Cells at Work series likes to be informational as well and this manga is no different. The information provided is great, like the effect that smoking or drinking alcohol has on the body. The creators do an amazing job of showing these issues while still maintaining a humorous, when appropriate, and entertaining tone. Who said education can’t be fun? If you liked the original series and don’t mind more adult content, then this manga is for you. Cells at Work is one of my favorite anime/manga so I will definitely be keeping up with this spin-off.

Cells At Work! Code Black Manga Volume 1

There are trillions of cells in the human body, and they all have to work hard to keep that body alive. But what if that body isn’t taking great care of itself? What if that body smokes too much? Or drinks too much? What if that body forgets to use protection? Why, it might find itself with all manner of dysfunction, and who’s going to have to pick up the pieces? It turns out the same immune cells that fight off the common cold also have to deal with troubles of a distinctly more adult nature…
